Who We Are

California E-Bike Incentive Project Logo

The California E-Bike Incentive Project is a partnership between California Air Resources Board and Pedal Ahead.

The California E-Bike Incentive Project is intended to encourage the adoption for low-income individuals of e-bikes as a replacement for motor vehicle trips while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Consistent with Senate Bill (SB) 375, the program aims to increase access to clean transportation options while offsetting vehicle miles traveled (VMT) by way of incentivizing e-bikes. The approach of the California E-Bike Incentive Project aims to 1) help people replace car trips with e-bike trips, 2) increase access to e-bikes, and 3) reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The California Air Resources Board is charged with protecting the public from the harmful effects of air pollution and developing programs and actions to fight climate change. From requirements for clean cars and fuels to adopting innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, California has pioneered a range of effective approaches that have set the standard for effective air and climate programs for the nation, and the world.

CARB’s mission is to promote and protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering effects on the economy. CARB is the lead agency for climate change programs and oversees all air pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain health-based air quality standards.

Pedal Ahead is a San Diego based 501(c)(3) certified non-profit organization dedicated to creating a sustainable and equitable future through the promotion of electric bicycles. Pedal Ahead’s goal is to foster a transportation system that is both environmentally friendly and accessible to all.

Pedal Ahead’s initiatives have enhanced quality of life for a variety of people – those that are transit-dependent and in need of additional travel options – as well as people who want to reduce their reliance on driving for neighborhood trips while better connecting to regional transit services.
